It’s Day 4 of WWDC and a fresh round of Digital Lounges, labs, and activities awaits you. Before we kick off Thursday, catch up on yesterday’s dispatch:
Spotlight on sessions, Digital Lounges, and labs
We’ve got a packed Thursday for you! Discover the latest updates to Vision, learn how to write for interfaces and collaborate with Messages, find out how to use SwiftUI with UIKit, create complications with WidgetKit, and — a WWDC first! — watch “Design for Arabic” delivered in Arabic by presenter Mohamed Samir.
And once you’re finished watching sessions for the day, join the Digital Lounges for more great Q&A from our design, photos, and Swift teams as well as live watch parties with the presenter of “Explore design navigation on iOS.”
Thursday is also your final day to request a lab appointment for a conversation with Apple engineers and designers. Come say hi and ask your questions!
Trivia Night is back
WWDC Trivia Night returns tonight at 6 p.m. PT in the Developer Tools Lounge. Put your brain to the test on such pressing questions as: What was the first supported programming language for Mac development? What’s the deal with 9:41? Come test your wits, compete with your friends and Apple staff, and suggest questions to stump the experts in the room.
Where we’re going, we don’t need roads
We’re going back in time with our Thursday Throwback SwiftUI challenge! Create a SwiftUI view that reimagines your app clothed in the interfaces of the past. Dress your UI up in the grayscale style of System 7, the linen of early iPhoneOS, or another time period entirely! Visit the SwiftUI Study Hall to collaborate on the “Throwback Thursday” coding challenge. Ask questions, connect with other developers, and share your creations or on Twitter using the hashtag #WWDC22Challenges.
An immersive app doesn’t only look and feel great — it has to sound incredible, too. During WWDC, we spoke with four Apple Design Award finalists about the sensational sounds of their apps and games: the incredible and immersive soundscape app Odio; the elegant and jazz-fueled Please, Touch the Artwork; the longstanding mindfulness resource Headspace; and the gorgeous tap-along rhythm game A Musical Story.
Spin the music of WWDC
And speaking of music: Give our official WWDC playlists a listen — they’re perfect if you need chill background music or a little audio kick to get you going.
Have fun out there, and we’ll see you tomorrow to close out WWDC22!
